Hardware upgrade and migrating VMWare to Proxmox

Question

I'm thinking about upgrading my hardware and moving from VMware to Proxmox. It'll be a good exercise which I'll probably am going to regret when I'm half way the upgrade :-)

 

I'm looking for some help in the migration steps;

 

Current setup:

Hardware: i3 6100 8Gb   250Gb SSD + 4x3TB + 3x5TB+2x8TB

VMWare ESXi 6.7.0

 

XpenologyA: Jun's Loader v1.04b - DS918 RDM 4x3TB - Photos, backups and document storage (The important stuff)

XpenologyB: Jun's Loader v1.04b - DS918 RDM 3x5TB + 2x8TB - Home media server (The not so important stuff)

XpenologyC: Jun's Loader v1.04b - DS918 No disks, upgrade/test purposes.

 

I'd like to move to a Ryzen 7 1700 with the Asus Prime X370-PRO with 16Gb running ProxMox

 

Installing Proxmox and Xpenology should not be a big problem. However, how am I going to migrate my data to the new installation without having to buy a sh*tload of drives?

 

I know DSM allows you to migrate a set drives from one server to another. But, how does this work/apply (if at all) when you have a virtualized instance RDM and you want to change from VMWare to Proxmox?

I skipped the proxmox installation.

 

changed the mother board with CPU, reconnected my drives and spun up the computer. It ESXi started without any problems.
